IWK Telethon

Mark your calendars! The IWK Telethon for Children returns on Saturday, June 3 and Sunday, June 4, 2023!

The IWK Foundation, in partnership with CTV Atlantic, is proud to continue the important Maritime tradition of sharing the inspirational stories of IWK patients and their families while recognizing the incredible generosity of donors throughout the Maritimes.

Last year's Telethon donors helped the IWK purchase many important pieces of equipment including:

CADD Infusion Pumps
Allow children to push a button when they are in pain and receive a safe dose of medication that has been programmed in advance by a physician
Provide a safe place for physicians to examine babies
BiliLux Phototherapy Device
Used to treat high levels of bilirubin in newborns
